LATEST UPDATE May 26, 2015

Updates: Hot off the press, Spring/Summer Morning Sun Books, DVDs


Our Summer/Fall show schedule has now been posted.


Effective immediately, the Post Office will NOT allow catalogs in Media Mail packages. In order to continue to offer you FREE SHIPPING, we have elected to discontinue putting catalogs in Media Mail packages. Packages sent by Priority Mail will still have catalogs included. The most up-to-date catalog is available online at our website, www.ronsbooks.com. Catalogs are available for $3.00 or if you are submitting an order, you can just add $1.00 and we will send it to you separately by first class mail. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause but we are trying to keep your costs as low as possible by offering free shipping. If you are at a train show which we attend, please stop by and pick up a catalog free of charge.


At the June Timonium train show we will have a large selection of used books that will be marked down from our regular prices, most priced between $1.00 and $25.00. The sale is only at the show and is limited to the stock on hand.

Unfortunately once again the US Post Office has raised shipping rates. This year has seen a significant increase in postage costs. One of the most effective ways to reduce postage costs is to combine your orders into 1 large order. The US Post Office offers flat rate boxes, the smaller size can hold 6 Morning Sun sized books, while the larger box can hold about 10. After about 3 books, the flat rate box is a cheaper option then weight based packages- if you then fill the box, any books after the first 3 ship for no additional postage. If you have any questions about what will fit in a box do not hesitate to contact us. We will be happy to help you out.
